This International film festival in St Louis is positioned to highlight some of the most compelling young talent in the industry.
The St Louis Film Festival is on the horizon, and the prestigious event will draw guests and contributors from around the world. Established in 1992 as the flagship event of Cinema St. Louis, the film festival has since grown into a regional institution. CSL has since expanded its reach to cover a variety of events throughout the year, but the local film festival November 5 through 15 still remains the organization's premier event.

WHITAKER ST. LOUIS INTERNATIONAL FILM FESTIVAL
NOVEMBER 5-15, 2015
The film festival will feature a number of attractions spanning the course of 10 days. Films, guests and events will be spread throughout the city of St. Louis, including college campuses like Webster University and Washington University, a dedicated stage at the non-commercial radio station KDHX, and the beautiful and historic Tivoli Theatre.
The International Film Festival has featured some of the most gripping films of their time. Past screenings have included a range of genres and styles, including the bleak rural drama of "Winter's Bone," "The Rite" by Swedish auteur Ingmar Bergman and the starkly realistic "The Bet Collector." Films range from feature-length movies and documentaries to shorts and include a range of both old classics and new favorites. The festival typically features a number of sidebars with themes shining the spotlight on specific cultural groups or thematic issues like environmentalism. A range of guest speakers and special seminars digging into the history and methodology of film offers guests a richer and more comprehensive understanding of the films being featured.
Whether you're an obsessive film lover or a neophyte, come see what the International Film Festival has to offer. We hope you spend your visit with us at The Chase Park Plaza!
